Abstract:
A study was undertaken to assess the nutrient status of turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) growing soils in relation to Root-knot Nematode of Nizamabad district, Telangana. Twenty eight representative villages were chosen and total twenty eight surface soil samples (0-15 cm) were collected and analysed for available N, P, K and micronutrient status. Results revealed that available nitrogen content ranged from 198 to 285 kg ha-1, available phosphorus content ranged from 14.0 to 34.0 kg ha-1 and available potassium content ranged from and 232 to 393 kg ha-1. Soils are deficient to sufficient in Zn and sufficient in available Cu, Mn and Fe. The available DTPA Zn status varied from 0.07 to 6.18 mg kg-1, Cu status varied from 0.60 to 11.52 mg kg-1, Mn status of these soils varied from 5.75 to 24.40 mg kg-1 and Fe content varied from 3.93 to 20.60 mg kg-1.
